When I've modified lag times, I use the PC based software to troubleshoot the activity, and then choose the scenario (e.g., device will not respond to command when it first starts, but will work correctly when I use Help on the remote). The software then takes you to the right place to alter the timings. Since I want the delay to be just enough but not too much, I usually adjust it a little bit at a time until it works. I just recently had to do this and ended up with a 9 second delay. Of course I started at about 4000 milliseconds, and upped it a 1000 at a time, so it was a bunch of re-dos. I never thought it would be that high, but there you go.
amazing and thank you for that input!! that is weird you have to do that backdoor approach to get it to work but whatever, i will if i have to. Mine is scheduled to arrive tomorrow but I am not hooking things up until friday so i dont know how much pre-work i can do. We will see. I am assuming it will be a couple hours of my time to use the PC and tailor to my liking. I wish i could find the database without creating an account. I want to make sure my TV is in there.
